LUPITA NYONG’O’S SENSATIONAL MESSAGE TO RAILA AHEAD OF THE SUPREME COURT BATTLE.
I’m writing to you this letter at a time when you seem to be profoundly aggrieved by the manner in which the 2017 electoral process was conducted.
Myself and of course others that constitute the diaspora constituency, were meticulously following the events as they were unfolding-we were following! Our hopes were so inclined.
We knew so well that for the first time since independence, the 2017-2022 government was going to be a government of the people and for the people. A government of the many downtrodden at the expense of the few rich.
Our unwavering hopes were reinvigorated by the technological advancements at the electoral body, which appealed to the whole world that Kenya was flying at a lightning speed to the horizons of democracy.
Unfortunately, before this was actualised, some demonic individuals brutally murdered Chris Msando-a man whose celebrated brainchild, could have set a resounding precedence for the rest of other sprouting democracies.
The outcome of all these mischief is that the IEBC did not pronounce you as the winner. In lieu, they did so to your main political foe. The international observers were swift to inform their governments that elections were free and fair. In turn, such governments, especially from the Western World appended their congratulatory messages for the perceived president elect. They told you to accept and move on or follow the due process if you feel dissatisfied and not to incite your supporters to go to the streets.
I feel that you’re left alone in this battle. But I want to tell you this; at some positions in life, the whole world may dessert you. The whole world may mock you for your stand, for your ,conviction for your cause. Those whom you considered as your greatest allies,those who regarded you in high esteem may turn against you and brand you all sorts of disparaging names.
However,if you’re standing on the ground of solitude, knowing too well that you are right ,that your conscience is clear,behold,remain unmoved,remain unbowed,remain unperturbed in that solitary position even for a century if need be.
I wish you well in your endeavors.
